When Tamara Kelly saw her daughter Jemma, she was distraught.

Her baby was born with only three fingers on each hand, and was missing an ankle on one leg.

Needing to make a medical decision, she opted to have the misshapen leg amputated.

Jemma may seem different, but she would never let anyone treat her so.

Now, at age three, the child is thriving. She has a prosthetic which helps her walk.

Jemma plays T-ball, is a cheerleader, and does the typical tyke stuff like jump on trampolines and ride bikes.

While it’s taken a lot of therapy to achieve such results, the reality of Tamara’s decision continues to convince her she made the right choice.

“We’re all incredibly proud of everything she’s done so far, she’s an amazing little girl,” said a very proud mom. We heartily agree.

You go girl, keep shining like the bright star you are.
